Indeed users have taken up Bitchute’s plea to verify this, including Tim Pool:
Twitter seems to have blocked Bitchute
I tried a couple links, they did not work

Here is what I got. They don't even have the courage to stand behind their censorship, they act like it is a "glitch," at least in my case. Nw where have we heard that excuse before 🤔 oh that's right EVERYWHERE! pic.twitter.com/ikQ47c6srd

I attempted this myself by tweeting a bitchute video of Nancy Pelosi going nuts with Judy Woodruff, and got this message:
We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful. Visit our Help Center to learn more.
There’s obviously nothing harmful about a link to this specific video, so this tells me it is indeed a sitewide ban. And I guarantee you it’s because Bitchute is a free speech platform and won’t participate in Big Tech’s censorship of conservatives, so Twitter is simply banning them outright.
Project Veritas is on the case…
